Bjøberg - Lio high mountain trail
From approx week 8 the beautiful high mountain trails in Hemsedal are groomed when the weather is stable. Check skisporet.no for status.
This is comfortable high mountain trail as it follows the valley from the mountain towards Hemsedal.
How to get there
From Hemsedal town centre, follow the main road Rv52 west for about 25 km to Bjøberg.
Lio is on the same route, about 10 km from the town centre.
Parking close to the barrier. Make sure to pay attention to any signposting.
Just across the river at the end of this trail, there is a small car park with a Vipps payment (for Norwegians).
Many do this route from Tubba/feten in the valley of Grøndalen and cross the mountain to Bjøberg and down to Lio. This requires two cars or someone to drive one to the start.
A great cross-country skiing trail that runs on the old kings road paralell to the main road Rv52 that goes over the Hemsedal mountain. You can also choose to do a longer trail as a round trip from Tuv, via Solheisen ski center and Bulien, over to Bjøberg and back down to Tuv via Lio.
Although this trail runs in the valley, it is defined as a high mountain trail as the upper part of the trail is particularly exposed to weather conditions.
See live grooming status of tracks at skisporet.no.
Is you dog with you? There is a leash requirement in all machine-groomed trails during Christmas-, winter-, and Easter holidays. Also note that the leash requirement is valid all season for the ski areanas Gravset (up to 8 km) and Totteskogen, as well as the valley & forest tracks from Gravset in the east to Feten and Lio in the west. Remember that your dog should not hinder anyone and thank you for cleaning up after your dog.
